    KDave reacted to westminstrel in Queen’s beasts Falcon gold proof should be out soon   
    Ugh! I’m sorry I don’t like it at all. The first few beasts look beautifully stylised. This here fellow looks like someone has quite literally ruffled his feathers. His head seems to big for his body, and his fantail behind the shield makes no sense to me.
    Basically, I don’t think he fits in with the rest of the beasts, stylistically. I guess I’d say the series started going downhill beginning with the bull. Glad I never started collecting this series - I’d be tugging at my feathers umm hair right about now 😬
    For those of you who do like it, I’m happy for you and hope the coins don’t have production flaws. 
    I will look forward to seeing actual pics.

    That's a great start. Key thing now is pacing. There's always more tempting shiny, but it's sticking to your budget that lets you keep growing a pile month in month out ☺️

    My first month's buys. It may be small but its mine and at an average of £16.80 Inc postage costs I don't think it's too bad, would like to buy in bulk but kids and life get in the way 😂.

    Considering the perception of popularity leading up to his win in 2016, we really can't trust anything right now.  Polls are inaccurate, they've proven that.  As the media is doom and glooming him constantly, we really don't know what the majority thinks, but we constantly hear what the minority thinks.  Mid term will tell for sure.  At least that is my take.

    Thank you for the interesting perspective, I was under the impression that the republicans would make gains in the mid terms, but I see now that Trumps approval ratings are very low. This is based on the polls however, so take with a pinch of Brexit salt. 
    I understand that Trump has over turned the disgusting racist policies that Obama introduced that favoured Black and Hispanic people over White and Asian's getting into University. Skin colour over merit. Do you mean those disgusting racist policies will be brought back in? Or do you mean the separation of families at the border? That policy was brought in under Bill Clinton. Do you mean Trumps continued deportation of illegal immigrants? Obama set the record for that one. Which racist policies do you mean?
    I understand the working economy is booming in the US thanks to the tax cuts, I can't see those going back up in a hurry unless for reasons of political gain from the fallout... I would be content to see this sabotage, it makes sense to collapse the economy with Trump at the helm, there really isn't a better time, or a better president to pin it on. Ride the blue wave.

    With the US elections just around the corner, it is becoming more and more likely that democrats will overwhelmingly win.
    The Democrats are a  dead party - they will not win.
    Define racist and then what racist policies does Trump have?

    Something a little different now...
    Since the "Strong" Venezuelan bolivar has been replaced with the "Sovereign" bolivar on 20th August, the old bolivar notes are now been removed from circulation, and in many cases are being thrown in the bin/burnt/generally destroyed.
    The situation in Venezuela is absolutely awful and is a prime example of the worthlessness of fiat currency. I don't usually collect notes, but as soon as they announced these were no longer in circulation I decided to buy the entire note set, all the way from 2 BLVs up to 100,000 BLV. The first note to arrive was, by chance, the 100 grand note. Should make for a nice little collection and may even appreciate in collectors value one day, much as the 100 trillion dollar Zimbabwe note has. And the whole set only set me back £20. Face value is about $0.03 though...a great reminder of why some of us buy gold and silver.

    Regarding a currency collapse you would need to work out equivalent value of the asset you are interested in - gold ounce to house price measured in currency for example. If you can still sell your gold and buy a house quickly, perhaps at auction, then do that. If its full on meltdown, then you exchange directly, gold for property using a solicitor or equivalent perhaps? It would be interesting to know what they do in Venezuela.
    Agreed, look to stocks, bonds, property as well, diversify. 
    By the sounds of things on the thread, mortgages and bread makers both appear to be good diversification too. I suppose debt is the best thing to own in Venezuela style currency collapse which is manifest as hyperinflation, so long as you are quick to exchange your other assets to pay off the debt units before they consolidate the currency as they have done.

    Listen to all the YouTube Videos then you think that the impending financial crisis going to happen tomorrow and you need purchase PM yesterday. I think US Dollar can continue with aid other central banks for a long time.
    Will there be another financial crisis or black swan event? Yes.
    When will this happen? No one knows.
    The most important question to me when do I want to convert large proportion of my fiat currency into Gold to protect my purchasing power regardless of whatever happens in the future? Silver amazing and has lot more upside potential then Gold BUT only been staking for a month already have 300oz silver and it heavy and takes up a lot space.
    Continue bear market in Gold I want to pull the trigger between $920 t0 $1000 dollar mark. Keeping eye price of PM on a daily basis. This level key as represent important Fibonacci retracement level taken six years to play out as well other technical analysis.

    Have two months food stocked up, a means to purify water, and enough cash for the same time period.
    I've heard it said we only need two weeks, but better safe than sorry when your life might be at stake imho.
    There is no point having anything else (silver, gold, anything) until you have these very simple basics covered.

    Wrong side of 30 only started stacking one month ago. Silver getting very close to it 5 year low $13.70 start 2016. Have go back July 2009 see $.13.70 prices. I am surprised at how fast gold and silver prices have fallen recently.

    The silver price today is ridiculous, an absolutely perfect time to start for anyone on the fence, even just a few ounces!
    I showed my friend a Panda and told him it was pure silver, asked him to guess the price - he said £100. Under £12 spot price an ounce is just crazy!

    I was a bit of a late starter only really discovered investing at 24, before then I just saved in cash thinking it was the safest way to save. Soon discovered sound money, started stacking gold and silver at 25. Sold most of it to fund house deposit post Brexit sterling/house price devaluation or gold price rise whichever way you want to look at it. I am 30 now stack 2 is just getting off the ground.
